“Though Shaw has been an Atlanta indie rock staple for 25 years, 'shut down, jump in' is her first solo album. As they say, it takes a lifetime to write your first album. In this case, it was worth the wait.” (Rachel Cholst, No Depression Magazine, January 5, 2016)
Becky Shaw is a singer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in Decatur, Georgia. To the Atlanta music community, she has become a “fixer” of sorts: you need any kind of singing – you call Becky. You need accordion – you call Becky. Keyboards, penny whistle, flute, drums, whatever. From her days as singer of art/indie band Reversing Hour to her role as a touring cast member in Amy Ray’s “Jesus Christ Superstar,” to her current band Roxie Watson, Becky has been singing and supporting friends for many years. Now – finally – she has released her first solo record, “shut down, jump in,” a collection of happy and sad and lush and sparse self-penned songs that coalesce around some exceptional singing.
Originally from Seattle, Becky's musical roots are deeply tapped into Americana music, classical and old country gospel , but rock & roll is at her core. She’s been compared to Aimee Mann & Patti Griffin, and her songs have even drawn John Lennon & Curt Cobain comparisons.
Becky has shared the stage with various artists including Indigo Girls, Patti Smith, Amy Ray, Michelle Malone, Paul Melancon & Shawn Mullins, and has performed on many stages including Eddie's Attic, The Variety Playhouse, Red Clay Theatre, The Bluebird Cafe, New York's CBGB's, The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, The Pier in Seattle, Richmond VA’s The National, and more. Although she plays guitar, drums, harmonicas, flute, piano, accordion, lap steel & ukulele, Becky’s primary instrument is her voice, which has been described as "clear as a bell, rich and haunting."
